Sunny Weekends in the PNW

I promise that I don't just eat out every weekend but lately we've been hitting up some seriously wonderful establishments. This weekend we drove up north to Bellingham, one of my favorite towns. We spent the day combing old bookstores, antique shops, hiking a little, and even stumbling upon some blue herons.

Enjoying a happy hour beverage at The Black Cat.

I had the crepes stuffed with swiss cheese, applewood bacon, broccoli, and spinach! They were dreamy.

The weekend before, I took my mom to Honore Bakery, renowned for it's espresso, specialty baked goods, and their french macarons.

We shared a chocolate and salted caramel macaron. I'm sure you can only imagine...

The past few weekends have been warm and full of sunshine and boy, have I been appreciating it! We just planted basil, spinach, snap peas, and sweet peppers in our raised garden bed and I can't wait to concoct some delicious recipes incorporating my homegrown ingredients!

 I may start documenting my seedlings' progress in the next few months, hopefully I don't find out that I have a brown thumb!
